Chevron had suffered huge cost overrun in all its LNG projects around the world in the last decay and scored a historical failure in its Soyo LNG project and Gorgon LNG project which made the executive vice president of technology & projects Mr. Joseph Geagea to declare the company design defects in its LNG projects when he said " We're going to focus on design and engineering. We're going to ensure those designs. I doubt that Chevron will be able to restart the plant. Chevron's (Angola) Soyo LNG plant is off line for three years and unable to put it online. Sam Simon wrote that Soyo LNG plant was a small fart but he expected that Gorgon LNG to be the biggest fart in LNG projects history. Chevron Should acknowledge that they lack of skills and expertise to operate LNG plants and should hand over the operations of this project to other partners such as Shell or Exxon mobile.
